You want fries with that?

A FLORIDA fast food restau­rant got a cus­tomer it wasn’t ex­pect­ing when a live al­li­ga­tor was tossed through a drive-thru win­dow by a pa­tron.

Joshua James, 23, of Jupiter, Florida, had wanted to play a prac­ti­cal joke on a friend work­ing at the Wendy’s restau­rant in Royal Palm Beach when he de­cided to hurl the rep­tile into the build­ing, his par­ents told lo­cal broad­caster WPTV.

“It was a stupid prank,” Linda James said.

James faces charges of ag­gra­vated as­sault, and un­law­ful pos­ses­sion and trans­porta­tion of an al­li­ga­tor, WPTV said. The in­ci­dent took place in Oc­to­ber.

James found the 3-foot al­li­ga­tor on the side of the road and led the rep­tile into his truck, ac­cord­ing to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Con­ser­va­tion Com­mis­sion in­ci­dent re­port cited by the sta­tion.

He drove to the Wendy’s restau­rant and placed an or­der, re­ceived a drink at the drive-thru win­dow, and then threw the al­li­ga­tor through the open­ing, it said.

The re­port con­tains a photo of the al­li­ga­tor sit­ting on the floor of the restau­rant, WPTV re­ported.

The al­li­ga­tor was re­leased back into the wild.
